Do you have the opportunity to read Japanese business books?

Reading books written in Japanese will help you improve your Japanese reading comprehension.

If it is a business book, it is useful also for business skills UP, so it is two birds with one stone.



  • It is difficult to read Japanese books because it takes long time…
  • It is hard to choose a useful book for me…

For these reasons you may not be able to read?


Therefore, this time I will introduce services that will solve these troubles.

That is “book summary service”.

You may know getAbstract etc.


There are several similar services in Japan so I chose the following two from the point of view,

“Business books are handled a lot”

“Abstract quality is high”

“Site UI is good”


(1) Flier :


  • From topical books and masterpieces, celebrities such as managers and university professors, experts, etc. have chosen “books that business people should read now”.
  • Management consultants and experts in each field prepare a summary.
  • It corresponds to PC smartphone tablet.
  • It is summarized so that it can be read in about 10 minutes.

(* For non-Japanese, it may take longer)

  • Because you can choose from categories, it is easy to find a book that suits you.

There are categories such as “Skill-up career” “Self-development / mind” “Productivity / time management” “Leadership management” “Management strategy” “Entrepreneurial innovation” “Personnel” “Marketing” “Finance” “Technology IT” “Science” “trend”.

Both sites introduced a new book “Job Theory” by Clayton M. Christensen (original title: Competing Against Luck), so I will link each of them for you. I think both are compactly summarized.


It will be a good story in a conversation with a Japanese business person, so please try it.
